As Thanksgiving winds down I thought this was a great reminder to take with us into the next season as we are continuously looking ahead to what is next…next to do, next to buy, next to find, next to achieve contentment. In the process we are missing the now and all of the gifts held within it.
Forgive me Lord for my waiting room addiction…addicted to always thinking I am waiting. Counting down the days until I enter real life, when real life is happening right now and You are the one waiting for me to give you thanks for the miracle of now. Wake me up from my waiting room addiction.
As we kick off advent today please try and enjoy every second of the upcoming Christmas season.
